About This Content

The Class 455 EMU is typical of the new generation of multiple units introduced in the 1980s to replace aging and out-dated ‘heritage’ units. Designed for use on Southern branch-line and suburban services with numerous stops and little need for high top speeds, the Class 455 runs in 4-car formations up to a maximum speed of 75mph, and remains a familiar sight around South London and all along the Southern network. A total of 137 Class 455 sets were produced, and with regular refurbishments taking place the type is still playing its part to keep Southern England moving.

The Class 455 for RailWorks 2, developed by Thomson Interactive, includes 3 liveries, accurately reproduced drivers cab and controls including functional DRA (Drivers Reminder Appliance), independent wiper selection, functional glare screen visor and opening cab windows (animated in-cab and external view), and all-new sounds recorded from a real Class 455.

Good looking and drives/brakes well. The downside is, like much of DTG purchases it lacks some details that one would expect as basic, e.g. Cab Lighting, signal/start buzzer and passenger views; also, it's disappointing that it cannot be used in Quick Drive mode.

Having bought quite a number of Routes and Add-ons over the last 18 months or so, I am now going to have a general moan. I have to say with the large majority of my acquired products I always feel let down and disappointed and end up witha sense of having been sold short. Usually because of a lack of attention to detail; work being rushed and unfinished; a minor glitch or oversight by the DTG Product designers and Technicians - and a feeling that they're not really bothered or are reluctant to repair or amend these errors.

Judging by the tone of other correspondents I am not alone in thinking this!

Microsoft Train Simulator from the very start always allowed more freedom of play than currently enabled by DTG TS: there was no restriction on routes, locos or points control - in whatever scenario - and errors were quickly rectified by patches. It is very sad that, given the huge improvement in graphics and technical resources over the last few years, Dovetail is unable(?) to provide this (BASIC) facility of what I call total freedom (OF CHOICE). Don't get me wrong, DTG TS designs and dispenses some excellent, outstanding merchandise, but more often than not, it is the silly, unnecessary mistakes and glaring omissions that "spoils the ship"! It is in danger of becoming great in quantity rather than quality!

Personally, I would be very happy if DTG only concentrated on providing accurate, well-detailed Routes and Locos ( with comprehensive controlable handles. levers, buttons and switches in cabs!)and dispensed with Standard and Career scenarios - which in the main seem to be pretty facile - thus allowing one to structure and manage one's own itinerary and timetable.. FREEROAM of choice!!!

Is is too much to ask for? It should not be too much to expect...!

Good loco. To get for quick drive customize the standard formations and it will be avaible. Scenarios for portsmouth dr are limited.

Nice little EMU for the PDL. My only complaint for this one is the sounds. But alteast when I buy the AP soundpack it will sound better.

You are getting your money's worth with this loco, which has many scenarios and liveries. The train doesn't run on the PDL in real-life, but who cares? Nobody.

In a nutshell. Its a very nice add on if you are into EMU's. Its got a nice cab and the sounds are decent as well. The acceleration is good especially when using the low frequency mode at Notch 4. The brakes are sharp but with some practice its okay. Shame there is no included scenarios for the London to Brighton scenarios as I am certain that the BR versions served Victoria in the 1980's? But who really cares, just enjoy yourself if you like EMU's.

Overall Rating: 8/10.
